    Hello :)

    The IP address is going to display the contents of the document root configured on the first Virtual Host in the Apache configuration file for that IP. Your access level is listed as "Reseller Owner" so I presume you do not have root access to this server. You may want to consult with your web hosting provider to see if they can arrange the httpd.conf file so that your primary domain name's Virtual Host is the first one for that IP address.

    Thank you.
